A Bronx teenager has been arraigned on attempted murder charges in connection with a double shooting at Bryant Park.

Corey Dunton, 16, was remanded to protective custody Monday following his appearance at Manhattan Criminal Court.

He's facing up to 25 years in prison for charges including attempted murder and criminal weapons possession.

Investigators say on Saturday night, Dunton walked up to a 20-year-old man at the park's ice rink and demanded his Marmot mammoth coat, which sells for hundreds of dollars.

However, the man refused to turn it over.

Police say Dunton left the rink then returned and opened fire.

The 20-year-old was hit in the leg and torso, and a 14-year-old boy was hit in the back.

He may now be paralyzed.

Police say witnesses identified Dunton as the shooter but the gun has not yet been recovered.

His lawyer denied the allegations.
